The French Under 21 international has been linked with a move to Rennes, Bordeaux and Guingamp, but after meeting Marcos he now seems set to stay with Le Championnat champions.
"Some time ago, I told my agent that I am not satisfied with only ten or 15 minutes per match," said Vahiura.
"I have to think about the Under-21 French team, that will play in the European Championship this summer. I can't get in on what I did last season.
"It is not blackmail, I just need to play. But of course, I also have to prove myself, and not only talk about it."
"I spoke with the coach and he renewed his trust in me and told me I could play more than before.
"It was nice for me because at a certain time I was a little disturbed. Anyway, we will have to settle the matter soon. We will take a decision on my future in the next week.
"Anyway, I really hope I play against Guingamp [Saturday], why not with a goal. But I want to say I am Nantes in mind and in my heart. After having contact with other clubs, it gave me more desire to play in Nantes."
